After 25 years in prison

Deadly babysitter

Christine Falling

is denied parole
by Teresa Eubanks,
Journal Editor
In 1981, the strange
case of a 19-year-old
Blountstown babysit-
ter had doctors search-
ing for a mysterious

deaths of five children
left in her care over a
two year period.
The mystery was
solved when Chris-
tine Falling confessed.
She told investigators
CHRISTINE FALLING that she had killed one
child because "he made me mad, and I was already kind
of mad that morning." The last to die in her care was
a Blountstown infant, 10-week-old Travis Coleman.
Falling admitted, "I just choked him. No apparent
reason, I guess..." t
Falling also confessed to killing two-year-old Cas-
sidy Marie Johnson of Blountstown and eight-month-
old Jennifer Daniels of Perry.
After serving the mandatory 25 years of- the life
sentence she was given for murdering three children,
her case came before the parole board in Tallahassee
on March 15.
The board decided she should remain in custody.
Falling, who is now 43, was not at the hearing and
remains incarcerated in maximum security at Home-
stead Correctional Institution.
"Parole was denied based on the nature of her crimes
and based on the fact that she had incurred a number
of discipline problems in prison," said State Attorney
Jerry Blair of the Third Judicial Circuit.
Blair, who attended the hearing and spoke out
against parole for the former babysitter, said he told
the board she, "had 22.disciplinary reports in 25 years
in prison and that if she could not conform to the rules
in prison, it was unlikely she could conform to live
outside prison."
In addition to the deaths of several children, Falling
was believed responsible for the deaths of two elderly
men in her care. After her imprisonment, Falling
"wrote two letters admitting she was responsible for
an additional death," said Blair.
"She was really one of America's first recognized
female serial murders," Blair said, adding, "I think
liistory has pretty. much forgotten her."

Man killed in crash near Liberty-

Gadsden County line on CR 270


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Chattahoochee man ejected
from his car after it went off the road

According to the FHP report, Murray's 1999 four-
door Chrysler was traveling east on C.R. 270 and failed
to negotiate a curve to the right. The car traveled off
the road and onto the north shoulder, where it began to
rotate.
The car overturned several times and ejected Murray
before it stopped in the dense brush, where it was not
readily visible by passing traffic.
The fatal accident is being investigated by FHP Cpl.
Timothy J. Roufa.

Murray is survived by his mother, Betty Dawson of
Bristol; his father, Willie E. Murray of Quincy; one son,
Reginald Murray of Oklahoma City, OK; three broth-

Legislative funding for small county courthouses fares well


TALLAHASSEE The sixty-day legisla-
tive session is nearing its close and funding
has been secured for courthouse facilities in
several rural counties in Florida according to
State Senator Rod Smith (D-Alachua). Bud-
get conferees met throughout the weekend in
Tallahassee and reached a final agreement on
several issues, including funding levels for
several small county courthouse projects, on
Monday evening.
Senator Smith announced that several rural
counties have secured funding for courthouse
facility improvements. "We've been fortunate
in the past four years in that we've been able
to secure funds for the facility needs of pub-
lic courthouses in many rural counties in the
state," said the Senator. "Having personally
tried cases as a prosecutor in many rural court-
houses, I know that we have some very real
facility needs and recognize that it is difficult


'Friend' arrested for

stealing $650 from

convenience store
A man who admitted to taking a large amount
of cash from a Blounistown convenience store \as.
arrested on a grand theft charge by the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department last week.
Abdulla Muhammad, 44, of Ocala, was seen on
the store security camera going behind the counter
at-the Pit Stop on State Road 20, where he had
stoppedaround 10:30 p.m. Saturday to visit with a
friend who worked there, according to the sheriff's
department report.
While at the store, Muhammad stepped behind
the counter where his friend was.busy ringing up
customers. '-
Later that night, store owner Amhed "Moe"
Rezaul discovered that $650 in cash was missing
from a cigar box under the counter..
Rezaul turned over a surveillance video showing
movements in the store to the police department.
At 1:10 a.m., a deputy stopped Muhammad after
seeing him make a right turn onto-State Road 20'
from River Street. Ridine wiih him was Debra
Scott, 38, of Blountstown.
When Muhammad was told of the video show-
ing him taking money from under the counter, he
responded by pulling outtwo $100 bills and stating
that was all he had left because he had spent $300
on crack cocaine on Ward Street, according to the
police department report.
He told the officer that he, Scott and several
others smoked the crack at her residence at Hidden.
Creek Mobile Home park.
Muhammad was taken into custody on a grand
theft charge. .
Scott was arrested after she took a wrapped
piece of crack cocaine from her pocket and tried
to toss it out and run away,, according to Deputy
Jared Nichols. When Nichols tried to grab her,
she resisted and continued to pull away before the
officer was able to get her in handcuffs. She was
charged with possession of cocaine.
The sore owner later said he would not pros-
ecute Muhammad if he would return all of the
stolen money.
Both Muhammad and Scott were released on
$1,000 bond.

Dispute over property
lands man in county jail
A man who drove into the path of a tractor and
threatened the driver if he did not stop plowing was
arrested Thursday after it was found that he was in
possession of a rifle while barred from doing so since
he was convicted of a felony 38 years ago.
Jessie Coe, 76, of the Ocheessee Community,
was taken into custody after admitting to a Calhoun
County Sheriff's Deputy that he went into the field
off Coe Road, stopped the tractor and told the driver
to get off his land.
Tractor driver Alex Dudley, 42, reported that
Coe also began yelling profanities and threatened
to return with a gun after blocking his path.
After determining that the land was owned and
maintained by Leola Bryant who said she had
told Coe to stay off the property after he threatened
her deputies went to Coe's residence.
Coe was. unable to produce proof that the land
was his and replied, "no" when asked if he had any
part in. maintaining the property.
When asked if he had a weapon, Coe retrieved a
12 gauge shotgun from his bedroom.
After checking with the sheriff's office and learn-
ing that Coe was a convicted felon, he was arrested
on charges of trespassing and possession of a fire-
arm by a convicted felon. After being handcuffed,
deputies went through Coe's home and discovered
two more shotguns in plain sight. He was released
on $1,000 bond.

Passenger arrested after
driver stopped for speeding
A Georgia teenager was issued a warning for
speeding but her passenger didn't get off so easy
after deputies found a bag of marijuana in his pocket
that weighed in at 23.5 grams.
The passenger, identified as Chris Neese, 18, of
Dallas, GA. was charged with possession of more
than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of para-
phernalia.
Their vehicle was traveling north on State Road
73 N. near Shelton Library around 10:30 p.m. Sat-
urday when a deputy clocked the driver traveling 72
mph in a 55 mph zone. After pulling the car over,
the deputy noticed the strong odor of burning can-
nabis. The driver, Neese, and three other passengers
were asked to step out while deputies searched the
2002 Pontiac after a package of rolling papers was
spotted when the glove box was opened to remove
the car registration.
A container with several types of rolling papers
was found under the passenger's seat where Neese
had been sitting. Deputies also recovered a bag
containing a pipe with burnt marijuana residue and
a grinder that contained marijuana. Neese claimed
ownership of all the items.
Neese was booked into the Calhoun County Jail
and the driver, identified as 19-year-old Jamie Grif-
fin, was released.

a report from I
FHP Trooper
Larry Battle.
Jeremiah
Clegg, 17, of
Youngstown,
was stopped



waiting to
turn into the w.' -.
parking lot of
the Pit Stop convenience store
when his 1996 Chevrolet pickup
was hit from behind. The colli-
sion happened about a half mile
west of Blountstown.
Battle said Britton Leach, 16,
of Altha was driving west when
his allergies started to affect him.
"He sneezed, looked tip and saw
the truck in front of him," Battle
said, explaining it was too late for
him to take evasive action.
Leach's 2001 Ford Escort
slammed into the back of Clegg's
truck, causing it to overturn onto


its right side.
Both drivers, along with
Clegg's passengers which
included Scott Grzegorczyk, 17,
and 15-year-old Taylor Smith,
both of Clarksville; and Justin
Goodwin, 17, of Kinard were
examined and treated at the scene
by ambulance crews.
Leach was cited for careless
driving and Clegg was issued
a notice of a seatbelt violation
because one of his passengers
hadn't buckled up.
Both vehicles were totaled.


Dalton was on patrol at 11:49 p.m. when he saw an eastbound ve-
hicle cross the center yellow line of the road into incoming traffic.
After stopping the vehicle, Dalton determined that the driver was
not intoxicated, but found he was in possession of a pill bottle that
contained a black straw, white powder residue and one Xanax tablet.
The officer spotted the bottle when the passenger, identified as Seth
R. Fisher, 23, of Crawfordville, retrieved his identification from the
pocket of a pair of shorts in the trunk of the vehicle.
Fisher told the deputy he had a prescription for Xanax but did
not have it with him; he also said that earlier he and some friends in
Panama City had been snorting the Xanax with the straw.
Fisher was later given a conditional release from the county jail.


'Safe Shelter' bill
Attorney General Charlie Crist
praised the Florida House of Rep-
resentatives for its unanimous
approval of the "Safe Shelter"
bill, which would significantly
increase penalties for anyone who
trespasses at a domestic violence
shelter. The goal of the bill, spon-
sored by Representative Jennifer
Carroll, is to keep abusers away
from those they have victimized

The bill, which has been en-
dorsed by the Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence and
numerous law enforcement enti-
ties, was approved by the House
117-0. Under the legislation,.
violators would face up to five
years in jail and a $5,000 fine, a

If you missed the April 1st

Liberty County 4-H/Tropicana public speaking program


by Monica L. Brinkley,
UF/IFAS, Liberty County Extension
For fourth, fifth and sixth
grade students spring time
means something a little
different. Each year after
these students finish taking
the Florida Comprehensive
Academic Test, teachers
begin preparing them for
the annual 4-H/Tropicana
Public. Speaking Contest.
Many hours are spent in
the classroom and at home
writing and preparing to
deliver a speech on a topic
of their choice to present to
their classmates.
The best time to teach
people to talk and think on
their feet is when they are
young. This is the objec-
tive of the 4-H/Tropicana
Public Speaking Program.
The program is sponsored
by Tropicana Beverage
Corporation and adminis-,
tered through the Liberty
County 4-H Program.
A real challenge occurs
when children prepare to
express themselves in front
of an audience. .Some stu-
dents overcome their initial
fear of public speaking more

5th grade students and a
middle school competi-

ner then competes at their
school to establish school

School winners then
competed for the county
winners. May 11 the coun-


ty winners will travel to
Tallahassee to compete in a
District Competition.
On April 20 the annual
county-wide contest was
held at the Veterans Memo-
rial Park Civic Center. The
program began with a Lib-
erty County High School
color guard who presented
the colors followed by the
Pledge of Allegiance to the
American Flag. Monica

Follow-up to Membership Presentation At last Thursday's

Street was very well presented and sparked a lot of compliments
and questions. Tony gave a laptop presentation in which he showed
"before" and "after" pictures of downtown Blountstown, relating to
the demolition of the old Piggy Wiggly and the C. C. Corbin Hardware
building. He also had beautiful shots of downtown attractions, such
as the old courthouse and the M & B Railroad historical display. A
highlight of the presentation was when Tony displayed old pictures,
newspaper clippings, and advertisements which gave members an
insight into the Blountstown of yesteryear. The Chamber would like
to extend a special "thank you" to Connie Clayton for the wonderful
meal. Several members complimented the great food and commented
on the quiet location at Connie's Restaurant.

Riding with Sweeney in his 2006 Chevrolet
pickup was Teresa Lynn Holley, 39, and Franklin
Holley, 37. Sweeney was not hurt; the others were

OUR INHERITANCE
Text:" Ephesians 1:1-14
Paul Lee Tan tells of an old man
who had a very prosperous business.
He began to wonder about the future
of the business after his death. He
.ni, ihad three nephews to pjss the
business along to.
The man decided to test the three
.. .,ihs to see which one would get the
inheritance. He gave each a coin and
.instructed, "Go and buy something
'with only this coin that w( ill filitus
-room as full as possible."
The first one dragged a'huge bale
of straw into the room, untied it, and it
burst open covering t %o ua ls %
The second one brought t'.o ba :s of
thistledown, opened the bags, and it
filled half the room.
The third said, "I gave my coin
to a hungry child and most of whit.I
had left I gave to the church. Then I
bought a flint and a candle." He struck
the flint and lit the candle, which filled
every comer of the room with light.
The old man made him his successor.
As followers of Christ, "we have
.obtained an inheritance (KJV)" that
cannot be earned or possessed through
any effort of our own. It cannot be
bought or won, yet we possess it
through saving faith. The verb tense is
the passive voice, meaning though we-
are the subjects of the action; we are
not producing the action. Perhaps an-
other way to phrase it would be, "we
have been made to be partakers of the
inheritance."
What is this inheritance? It is eter-
nal life, a place in the Father's house,
to be with Jesus, rewards that will
never rot, rust, fade, or be taken away,
and an eternal glory that far outweighs
all of the trials that we have to endure
on earth. This has been God's purpose
"before the foundation of the world
(KJV)." God has been steadily work-
ing things out toward this end. Are
you an heir?

We welcome your church announcements and remind you to be sure
to include the day and date as well as time and location of each event.
We also ask that you include a phone number or directions to the church
to make it convenient for our readers.
There is no charge for church announcements, but we run each an-
nouncement only once. If you would like to repeat the same announce-
ment, we can do so but must charge for the space as though it were an
advertisement.
Often, churches want to publicize events several weeks prior to the
activity If you can provide information about different aspects of the
event, we can run a series of announcements. For example, if a church
is celebrating homecoming, the first story might be about the history of
the church, the second story might give some background on the singers
or special speakers to be featured, and the third article could focus on
the day's schedule of events. Each article should end with the basics
- time, date and location.
Please try to keep the articles no longer than one typewritten page
or two handwritten pages in length.

Local Indians prepare lawsuit against state l 4


To the editor:
Their Indian ancestors migrat-
ed to Florida in the early 1800s,
just like the Seminoles. They
lived in isolated, swampy lands
rarely visited by outsiders, just
like the Seminoles. They main-
tained their own separate Indian
churches and schools, just like
the Seminoles. So, why is it that
the State of Florida has given
the Seminoles reservation land,
special automobile tags, college
scholarships, and special hunt-
ing & fishing rights while the
Catawba Indians living along
the Apalachicola River were
not? These are questions local
Indian leaders have been asking
state representatives for the last
seven years, and are preparing a
lawsuit in Federal Court to get
the answers.
"We have been writing letters
and making phone calls to state
people for over seven years now,"
stated Pony Hill a representative
of the Florida Catawba. "They
either ignore us, or refer us to
someone who ignores us." Hill


History Teacher
NEW YORK, NY The
Gilder Lehrman Institite of
American History is seeking
nominations for the- annual
Florida History Teacher of
the Year Award. The Institute,
in partnership with Preserve
America, inaugurated the award
in 2004.
The History Teacher of
the Year Award is designed
to promote and celebrate the
teaching of American history
in classrooms across the
United States. It honors one
exceptional K-12 teacher of
American history from each
state and U.S. territory. The
selection of the state winner
is based upon several criteria,
including: experience in
teaching American history
for at least three years; a deep
career commitment to teaching
American history; evidence of
creativity and imagination in the
classroom; and close attention
to documents, artifacts, historic
sites, and the other primary
materials of history.
The state winner will receive
a $1,000 honorarium and
will be in the running for the
National History Teacher of the
Year award to be selected this
fall. His or her school library
will receive a core archive of
history books and materials.
The deadline is May 5,
2006. For more information,

over dusty documents stored in
archives, courthouse basements,
and shoeboxes in elders' closets-
in an effort to gather evidence
of the constant struggle the lo-
cal Indians endured to remain in
Florida. According to these doc-
uments several Catawba families
traveled down from the Catawba
reservation .around 1829 and
settled on the plantation of Capt.

educators, partners with school
districts to implement Teaching
American History grants,
produces print and electronic
publications and traveling
exhibitions, and sponsors
lectures by eminent historians.
The Institute also funds
awards including the Lincoln,
Frederick Douglass and George

offers fellowships for scholars
to work in history archives,
including the Gilder Lehrman

were sons of famous Catawba
Chiefs back in South Carolina.
The Florida Catawba are pre-
paring to file the lawsuit on July
14th, which was the date that
one of these chiefs died on the
old reservation. "The death of
Chief Jacob Ayers seems to be
the reason that our ancestors de-
cided to come down to Florida,"
Hill said, "so we decided that
was a. historically significant
date." As a civil rights violation
case, the lawsuit names Gover-

dollars or the annual operating
budget of the Seminole Nation
of Florida, whichever is larger"

FWC receives Active Leisure for Life Award


from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
The Florida Disabled Outdoors
Association honored the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) with its
annual Active Leisure for Life
Award.
The award recognizes the
FWC's leadership in providing
access to hunting, fishing and
other outdoor recreation for
disabled persons. Association
president, David Jones, founded
the organization in 1990 after he
sustained an accidental gunshot
wound to the head during a 1988
turkey hunt.
The association's .mission is
to enhance the quality of life for
people with disabilities through
promoting active leisure.
FWC received the award
during an April 24 dinner at
the Silver Slipper restaurant in
Tallahassee.
Jones survived the head injury,
which led to paralysis on his left
side. He thought he'd never fish or
hunt again. Instead of feeling sorry
for himself, he poured his energy
into raising awareness that people
with disabilities can continue
with most of their hobbies, given
the right opportunity and a little
help from others.
The first mobility-impaired
hunt at Three Lakes. Wildlife
Management Area saw many
participants, but not a high-
quality experience. Physically,
participants could not go into the
palm scrub and they faced other
obstacles .
"I came back with ideas to
improve the hunt, and. proposed


guidelines," he said. The next
place he approached was St.
Marks National Wildlife Refuge
- with recommendations for
starting a mobility-impaired
hunting program.
"It was very successful," Jones
said. "People loved it. I took
that success story back to the
then-game and fish commission
showing them what we did."
FWC's leadership role,
especially that of Assistant
Executive Director Victor.Heller,
helped Jones realize his dream to
continue his favorite pastimes.
"Vie Heller knew what I was
attempting to do," Jones said.
"He was very eager to better serve
people with disabilities."
So, Heller located the Holton
Creek area along the Suwannee
River between Jasper and Live
Oak. -
"I got into the car with Vic and


drove over there," Jones said.
"The property was beautiful, had
good access, looked like good
deer habitat and was just perfect.
I told Vic: 'Yes, this is it. This
would be a great place to have a
hunt.'"
The trip resulted in the state's
first mobility-impaired hunt
management area. Florida now
has 19 mobility-impaired hunts.
I "Vic is the hero of this award
in my opinion," Jones said. "But,
there are many unsung heroes."
Another staff member, Art-
Stockle, a former FWC biologist,
.also gave great assistance to
Jones.
"His interest and his drive to
make it a good program -- his
attitude -- is what made it so
successful," Jones said.
"FWC is receiving this award --
not for one thing, but for its overall
willingness to pursue options


for people with disabilities." he
said. "To my knowledge, Florida
is hands down the leader in
providing outdoor recreation for
people with disabilities. I'm very
proud of what Florida has done.
I believe lives have been saved
because of this."
Heller said he is humbled by
the award.
"I am very appreciative of
everything David has done in
bringing to the forefront the need
for hunting and fishing areas for
the mobility-impaired," Heller
said. "The agency is very humbled
by being honored in this way and
by David's kind words.
"FWC strives to allow
accessibility for everyone. This
award is testament to the hard
work by our employees and
people like David who volunteer
many hours in making things
happen," Heller said.


Special opportunity hunts offer hunters quality experiences


If you're looking for a
quality hunting experience,
look no further. The. Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is offering hunters
unique fall season hunts for deer,
wild hogs and released quail on
the state's best public hunting
lands.
These special-opportunity
hunts offer hunters vast areas,
abundant game, low hunting
pressure and excellent chances
to bag quality game on select
wildlife management area
(WMA) throughout Florida.
The special-opportunity deer
and wild hog hunts take place


on Fort Drum (Indian River
County), Lake Panasoffkee
(Sumter County), Triple N
Ranch (Osceola County) and
Green Swamp West Unit (Pasco
County) wildlife management
areas. The released- quail hunts
take place on Blackwater WMA -
Carr Unit in Santa Rosa County.
All deer hunts allow you to
take only mature bucks with one
antler at least four points. Does
also may be taken if you apply
for and draw an antlerless deer
permit. During hog hunts, there,
is no size or bag limits. For the
released-quail hunts, you must
bring and release your own pen-
raised quail.
If you find these special-
opportunity hunts appealing,
you may apply for one or more
of these- fall hunts beginning
May 9. The FWC will continue


accepting applications for special-
opportunity hunts through June
14. Worksheets are available
from any FWC regional office or
MyFWC.com/hunting. To apply
for these hunt permits, take a
worksheet to any license agent or
tax collector's office or submit an
application at MyFWC.com.
Based on past years, demand
for these hunts is greater than the
number of available slots, so a
random drawing is conducted to
select hunters. Individuals can
improve their chances of being
selected by submitting as many
nonrefundable $5 applications
as they would like. The cost of
the hunts for selected applicants
ranges from $50 to $175.
Visit MyFWC.com/hunting
for more information on how to
apply for special-opportunity
hunt permits.

Southern Pine Beetle Prevention Cost

Share Program for landowners to begin
TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson has announced that beginning
May 1 the department's Division of Forestry will offer a new
Southern Pine Beetle Prevention Cost Share Program to eligible
non-industrial private forest landowners.
The goal of this program is minimize southern pine beetle damage
in Florida by helping forest landowners reduce the susceptibility of
their pine stands to this destructive insect pest. Periodic southern
pine beetle outbreaks in Florida have resulted in millions of cubic
feet of pine timber killed on many thousands of acres. Forest
management practices, such as thinning and prescribed burning, can
improve the health of pine stands and decrease their likelihood of
developing southern pine beetle infestations.
The new program offers up to 50 percent cost reimbursement for
pre-commercial thinning and prescribed burning treatments, and a
fixed-rate, per-acre incentive payment for landowners who conduct
a first pulpwood thinning. The program is limited to 44 northern
Florida counties located within the range of the southern pine beetle.
Qualified landowners may apply for one approved practice per state
fiscal year. The minimum tract size requirement is 10 acres and
funding requests may not exceed $10,000.
For an application and more information on program requirements
and procedures, visit your local Division of Forestry office. Contact
information for the county forester office in your area is available at
www.fl-dof.com. Applications cannot be submitted before May 1 and
will be evaluated on a first-received, first-served basis. The program
is.supported through temporary grants.from the.USDA Forest Service
and will b.e:offered only,as-long as funding is.available. .


* Harvest low-vigor
stands and replant.
* Plant species right
for the soil and site.


Help prevent damage from bark beetles,
diseases, and wildfire through practices
that promote healthy pines.
* Thin dense pine stands. .Use prescribed fire.

New electronic fingerprint
processing in use by DBPR
TALLAHASSEE The Department of Business and Profes-
sional Regulation (DBPR) announce that electronic fingerprinting
is now available to all real estate licensure applicants. Electronic
fingerprinting will benefit applicants by reducing the likelihood of
illegible fingerprints or missing information on the fingerprint card.
DBPR has contracted with Promissor, a worldwide knowledge as-
sessment center, as an electronic fingerprinting vendor, offering ap-
plicants 15 convenient fingerprinting sites across the slate.
"The department is excited about the move to electronic finger-
print reporting for real estate applicants," said Secretary Simone
Marstiller. "I encourage real estate applicants to take advantage of
this new, faster, more reliable process."
Beginning July. 1, per statute, electronic fingerprinting will be
mandatory for all real estate sales associate and real estate broker
applicants. DBPR has taken steps to provide real estate applicants
the opportunity to begin utilizing an electronic process now to sub-
mit their fingerprints.
The electronic process allows applicants to have their fingerprints
scanned and electronically submitted to the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and Federal Bureau of Investigation. The elec-
tronic process greatly-reduces the fingerprint processing time, typi-
cally taking 48 to 72 hours, whereas the paper copy method gener-
ally takes three to Six weeks.
Reservations and payment can be made by visiting the Promissor
reservation website at www.promissor.com and selecting Finger-
printing Services, or by calling their toll-free reservation number at
1.877.238.8232 (TTY 1.800.274.2617). The fee for electronic fin-
gerprinting is $61.



apartment. Meanwhile, the little girl apparently returned to the area
where the Diamondback rattlesnake was curled up on the bottom plank
of a bookshelf and was in the room when the officer arrived.
The little girl, who was not frightened of the snake, told him she
had been playing with the deadly reptile, which was about a foot and
a half long, Creamer said.
Gene Bess, who lives next to the daycare .center, said he thought
the little girl was talking about a toy when she told him what she had
discovered. When he went to check it out, he was surprised to see it
was a real snake. He said there were between 10 and 12 youngsters
in the playroom and he got them out as soon as he could.
"It was kind of hot that day," Bess said, "The only thing I can think
of is that it (the snake) came in underneath the door."
After Creamer put the snake in ajar, he and Bess showed it to the
children and warned them of the danger. "He told them when they
see something like this to call an adult," Bess said.
Creamer took the snake from the building and released it into the
woods.

Frederick B. Peters endowment established by Chipola alum


MARIANNA-Chipola
College graduate Tom Gould
recently returned to his alma
mater to establish a scholarship
endowment in honor of retired
business instructor Frederick B.
Peters.
Gould-whose retail clothing
career included terms on the
board of directors of Proffit's,
Inc.. which is now Saks, Inc.,-
credits Peters for inspiring his
success in business.
The Frederick B. Peters
Scholarship Endowment will
provide two annual scholarships
to business majors who work
while attending college. Gould
asked that Peters and his
family assist in the selection of
annual recipients. The first two
scholarships will be awarded in
the Fall of 2006.
Gould made an initial $15,000
contribution with a commitment
of $175,000 over the next 10
years. He said, "I'm happy to
honor this man who was such
an inspiration to me and others.
Mr. Peters would look at us with
those flashing blue eyes and
motivate us and inspire us. I.owe
much of my business sense to
him. I'm blessed to be able to
make a contribution in honor of
the man, and to the college that
helped me get where I am."
Peters taught accounting
and business courses and also
served as business manager at
Chipola from 1957 to 1960, as
professor from 1960 to 1965
and as chairman of the Business
Division from 1968 to 1993.
He said, "I am deeply moved
by Tom's gesture of generosity
in the name of someone who
had such a small part in his
education. Many former students

'You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown' musical May 4 & 5


MUSICAL DRAMA
by Justin McCoy
Atlha Public School's
music department is proud
to present their upcoming
musical, "You're a Good Man,
Charlie Brown!"
It's jam-packed fullwith witty
charm and big musical numbers
by all of the lead characters. The
actors and their characters are
as follows: John Baumer as
Charlie Brown, Sarah Shelton as
Lucy Van Pelt, .Justin McCoy as
Linus Van Pelt, Audrey Brown
as Sally Brown, Nick Hansford
as Schroeder, Amber Cook as
Peppermint Patty, Angela Byler
as Marcie, Nathan Ross as Pig
Pen, and Tiffany Betts as the
ever enduring Snoopy! Also,
Marianna DeBolt, Morgan
Swilley and Kathryn Nichols
have taken on additional
supporting roles..
"You're a Good Man, Charlie
Brown" is based on the beloved
"Peanuts" gang comic strip.
The story is an average day in
the life of Charlie Brown, where
his friends make known his
faults and failures. "Now
this is what you call a failure
face," remarks Lucy, referring
to Charlie Brown's facial
expression. As Charlie Brown
searches for real happiness, the
quirks of his friends and dog are
revealed in a showcase of
bravado musical numbers. Lucy
explains her outlook on life as
her "future musician husband,"
Schroeder; plays his piano;
Linus obsesses over his blanket;
Sally rebelliously exclaims her
new philosophies; and Snoopy
dwells in conflict with the Red,
Baron.
All along the way, Charlie
Brown scrambles his courage
in an attempt to overcome his
insecurities, with the aid of his
friends, of course. Everyone in
the audience can relate to these
characters, with their childish
wit and excavation of solutions
to everyday problems.
This year's production is
extra special, because it is a
full-blown musical. In the past,
Altha. like most high schools,
has performed junior musicals,
which are condensed versions of
the actual Broadway production.
This year's production is the
complete Broadway production
that has been nominated for five
Drama Desk Awards. It first
appeared on Broadway in 1971
for 32 performances. In 1999,
it reappeared on Broadway with
a face lift. Seventeen of the
original sketches were cut out and
21 new ones were added. There
will be an intermission, and best'
of all, admission is FREE! Due
to the expense of paying royalties
for the paid showings of the
actual Bioadway production, the
music department has decided
to not charge for admission, as
the royalties would cost much
more if the audience had to pay.
Nevertheless, partial royalties
of the initial expense must be
paid for obtaining the rights to

appreciated, but not required, so

school hours, and nighttime
showings are on the same dates

is sure to be there!
DAYS OF
REMEMBRANCE.
by Nikki DeBolt_
April 23 began the Days
of Remembrance, which will
last through April 30. This week
is set aside by the United States
Holocaust Memorial .Council
to honor Holocaust victims and
remind Americans of '\ hat can
happen to civilized people. when
bigotry, hatred, and indifference
reign. Altha School would'
like to encourage everyone to
join them in one of the many
different Observances and
Remembrance activities that
take place during this week, the
Paperclip Campaign.

During World War II,
Norwegians wore paperclips
on their cuffs and collars to
demonstrate their opposition
to Nazism and to .anti-
Semitism:Wearing a paper clip
could result in arrest, but the
function of the device 'to bind
together' took on the fiercely
s mbolic meaning of 'people
joining .against .the forces of
opposition.' Today many schools

ALTHA WILDCATS Si


and organizations embrace
the program and promote
participation with others. By
simply wearing a paperclip on
your clothing during the Days
of Remembrance you can honor
Holocaust victims, support our
troops who can be targets of
hate crimes, and do your part to
support equality and tolerance to
oppose hate crimes, racism, and
prejudice.
FCCLA STATE
CONFERENCE
by Sarah Shelton
On April 10-13, the Altha
FCCLA chapter attended the

Junior FCCLA member

a silver medal for her original
story,"The Tiny Frog that
Could" in the Storytelling event.

Gas price goes

up, demand

comes down
TALLAHASSEE Separate
surveys conducted by the
government and a petroleum
trade organization found
Wednesday that American
commuters have reduced their
gasoline use in response to
recent price increases.
The American Petroleum
Institute reported that gas use
last month decreased by 0.6
percent when compared to the
same time last year, because
"high fuel prices have led to
decreased demand for gasoline
and other refined oil products."
Gasoline use for the past
four weeks was up .6 percent,
according to the US Energy
Information Administration, but
the typical increase around this
time of year is 1.5 percent.
Gasoline prices average just
over $2.80 nationally and $2.91
locally and have followed a
rising trend over the past month.
According to one industry
analyst, prices could start to
drop if the demand for gasoline
continued to fall.
"In everyone decided to drive
3 percent less the next 30 days,
prices would crash," Tom Kloza,
senior analyst at the Oil Price
Injforn nation, told the Associated
Press.
One of the easiest ways *.o
reduce dependence on gas -'
to carpool. Commuter Services
of North Florida provides free
ridematching to residents in the
Big Bend area who wish to start
or join carpools. Ridematchi'ng
is also available online iEZK .)
al. www.commuterservices.oc-g.
The first step to starting a
successful carpool is requesting
a free. personalized matchlist.
When a commuter completes
a "ridematch request form"
or uses EZRide online, the
commuter will receive a list of
neighbors and co-workers with
similar transportation schedules
who are interested in pooling.
Matchlists are distributed
with work phone and address
only. Personal information, such
as home phone and address,
is kept confidential and used
strictly by Commuter Services
staff.
For more information on
requesting a Ridematch or
EZRide (online Ridematching),
please contact Commuter
Services of North Florida at 1-
888-454-RIDE.
Surveys have shown that
commuters have reduced their
gasoline use in response to
recent prices increases. By
choosing commute options,
residents can negate the effects
of rising transportation expenses
and possibly drive gas prices
back down...... ..

Preparing your lawn for drought


Spring has started on a dry note
along the Gulf Coast. Drought
conditions are unpredictable and
can be difficult to deal with in the
landscape. Although droughts
are usually thought of as long
periods of time, such as months
or years, sandy Florida soils can
experience drought conditions
after only a few days without
rain. Even if we don't have an
outright drought this summer,
preparing your lawn for dry
weather is smart.
All plants require water. Al-
though some plant species are
large consumers of water, other
species can be maintained with
relatively low quantities of wa-
ter. Many people consider turf-
grasses to be large water con-
sumers, but many turf species
have excellent drought toler-
ance mechanisms. Bermudag-
rass, zoysiagrass, bahiagrass,


by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County

and centipedegrass have the best
drought tolerance of the south-
ern turfgrasses, followed by St.
Augustinegrass and carpetgrass.
Of course, all turfgrasses need
water to survive. But turning on
the sprinklers anytime you feel
the lawn needs a drink tends to
waste water, can damage your
grass and can actually make it
more dependent on water.
The primary objective of
drought conditioning is to grow
a good quality lawn that will sur-
vive on little or no supplemental
irrigation. A drought conditioned
lawn can withstand more stress
than a lawn that is not condi-
tioned. A properly prepared lawn
will have a deep and extensive


Bristol Post Office removes

environmental pest plant
Recently, Torreya State Park Biologist Mark Ludlow advised the
staff at the Bristol Post Office the landscaping shrub the nandina or
"heavenly bamboo" in front of the building is considered an environ-
mental pest species. Nandina is classified as Category I Invasive Ex-
otic by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (FLEPPC). Category I
plants are known to actively invade natural areas and disrupt native
plant communities.
Although the Post Office's plants may not directly threaten con-
servation lands, they are not an "environmentally-friendly" land-
scape species. The post office also has several "firepower" or dwarf
nandina, which is very similar looking, but has no fertile seeds (red
berries). It is therefore not a threat to native plant communities. After
learning about the exotic pest plant issues, Bristol Postmaster Rickey
Brown said "by all means, nuke it." Ludlow sprayed the plant with
an approved triclopyr herbicide and the nandina will soon be gone

root system that is better able to
seek out water.
Proper irrigation is the first
step in conditioning a lawn for
drought. Many people rely on
their automatic sprinkler sys-
tems to apply small amounts
of water several times weekly
to their lawn, regardless of the
amount of rainfall received. This
practice is actually detrimental
to the grass because it promotes
a lawn that requires more water
and one that cannot withstand
tough stress. Less frequent, lon-
ger irrigations will assist in es-
tablishing a deeper, more viable
root system.
To develop a deep root sys-
tem, water your lawn when the
first signs of wilt occur. When
the lawn needs water, you'll see
spots in the lawn that turn bluish-
gray, footprints that remain in
the grass long after being made,
and many leaf blades folded in
half lengthwise.'
Apply enough water to wet
the turf's rootzone. Along the
Gulf Coast, one-half inch of
water is generally sufficient. Do
not water the lawn again until
signs -of wilt occur yet again.
This technique works regardless
of turfgrass species, soil type,
season, or other environmental
conditions. It may take up to
six weeks to condition your turf
to survive several days or more
without wilting between irri-
gations or rainfall. During this
time the root system is devel-
oping and growing deeper into
the soil. In time, your lawn will
establish a more uniform ap-
pearance with less thatch and a
deeper root system.
Whether you use a permanent
system or a sprinkler attached to
a hose, it's important to know
how much water you're apply-
ing. Not knowing your water
application rate is like driving a
car without a speedometer.
Different systems apply water
at different rates. So, take the
time to figure how much time it
takes for your sprinkler system
to deliver one-half inch of water.
To do this, simply place several
straight-sided cans or rain gaug-
es in the area to be watered. Let
the sprinkler run until one-half
inch of water is delivered.
The time to deliver the proper
amount of water will vary de-
pending on the types of sprin-
kler heads, the water pressure
and the time of day you usually
water. Each system will be dif-
ferent and each zone may also be
different. Only actual measure-
ment will tell you the length of
time to leave a particular zone
on.

RFM Plans Grandparents' Day May 3


Elementary classes are
working daily to prefect their
performance for the May 3
May Day program. The theme
of this year's Grandparents'
Day show is "Growing Up at
Robert F. Munroe." The show
will have music performed by
students in kindergarten through
fifth grade, and it will include
some show tunes, folk songs,
a Greek Tragedy, recorder and
guitar ensembles, and even
the fifth grade's own rock
anthem. Four young students
will perform piano pieces. The
music teacher Ric Edmiston is
putting the show together, but it
is based on the input of all of

C CONDITION






APRIL26; 2006 THE-CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 31


,Q: Does diet affect an overactive
bladder and urinaiy incontinence?
A: Maybe. An overactive bladder
is characterized by the sudden need to
urinate. If that need leads to the leak-
age of urine, the condition' is called
urge incontinence. Both result from
the abrupt, involuntary contraction of
a muscle in the bladder wall. Studies
show that being overweight increases
a person's odds of developing urge
incontinence and urge-related symp-
toms. For people with this condition
who are overweight, a weight loss of
even five to ten percent can cut their
incontinence in half. Isolated studies
have linked caffeine and high-fat diets
with an overactive bladder, too, but
other studies do not. Urologists some-
times suggest that patients try avoiding
substances that might irritate the blad-
der, like alcoholic beverages, coffee
(including decaf), tea and carbonated
beverages. However, there is no rea-
son to avoid these foods if you don't
experience any improvement. "Stress
incontinence," the inability to prevent
the escape of urine during a physical
stress such as laughing, coughing, or
sneezing, is generally not affected by
foods. It can be treated with exercises
to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles,
and occasionally by surgery. If you
suffer from an overactive bladder or
any form of incontinence, you should
discuss the problem with -your doc-
tor. The condition is widespread and
can be treated. Behavioral training to
control bladder function and certain
medications can be highly effective.


Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative


sponsors trip for local students


WEWAHITCHKA Gulf
Coast Electric Cooperative re-
cently sponsored a trip to Tal-
lahassee for local high school
juniors. The trip was part of
the Rural Electric Youth Tour
Program that rural electric co-
operatives across the nation
participate in.
Each year, the Coopera-
tive sponsors the program for
eleventh-graders whose par-
ents or guardians are members
of GCEC. A panel of three
judges from the electric co-
operative industry interviews
participants, and two winners
are chosen to travel on an all-
expenses-paid trip to Washing-
ton, D. C. in June, where they
join other eleventh-grade stu-
dents from all over the United
States to tour our nation's cap-
ital. However, every student
nominated by a local civic
organization or high school to
participate in the program is
invited to travel on an all-ex-
penses-paid trip to Tallahassee,
where they join approximately
100 other high school juniors
representing electric coopera-
tives all over Florida.

in February, and will represent
the Cooperative during .the
Washington tour.
While in Tallahassee, the
students participated in a
mock session of Congress, led
by Steve Uram of the National
Rural Electric Cooperative As-
sociation. They also participat-
ed in a mock voting session in
the House of Representatives,
where they heard two house
members speak. Addition-
ally, they toured the old capi-
tol building, including the for-
mer House of Representative
and Supreme Court chambers.
and .the Vietnam Memorial.,
The students also visited the
Challenger Learning Center,
where they watched the Imax
movie Magnificent Desolation
Walking on the Moon.
"The Youth Tour program
is a great opportunity for us to
reward local students for be-
ing outstanding leaders in their
communities," Bennett said.
The Rural Electric Youth
Tour Program has been in exis-
tence since 1957 when co-ops
sent students to Washington,
D. C. to work during the sum-
mer. By 1964, the program
was catching on, and the Na-
tional Rural Electric Coopera-
tive Association began to coor-
dinate the efforts of the co-ops.
Since then, thousands of young
people have experienced this
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to visit our nation's capital and
learn about our government.
Gulf Coast Electric Cooper-
ative is part of the Touchstone
Energy national alliance of
local, consumer-owned elec-
tric cooperatives providing
high standards of service to
customers large and small.
GCEC serves approximately
20,000 consumers in Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Wal-
ton and Washington counties
and in the municipalities of

Pro-consumer measure will empower homeowners


TALLAHASSEE-Thanks to
changes to Floridalaw pushed by
Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief
financial officer, homeowners
now have another resource
they can rely on to prepare for
future hurricanes. Insurance
companies in Florida will now
be required to include a simple
checklist on the front of all
homeowners policies delivered
in Florida. The checklist xWill
make it easier for policyholders
to discuss their coverage with
their insurance agent and will
clearly show if they have
enough coverage to rebuild
after a catastrophe.
Gallagher along, with
Governor Bush and the other
members of the Financial
Services Commission approved
the final checklist for use. All
insurance companies will have
to have their agents include a
completed checklist on the front
of every homeowners, mobile
homeowners, or condominium
insurance policy. .
"This checklist is another
important step toward
continuing to create a culture
of preparedness in Florida,"
said Gallagher. "By arming
Floridians with the tools and
information they need to
prepare their finances, their
homes, and their families, we
can help reduce the toll future
storms may take on our state."
The consumer checklist is
just one of the pro-consumer
reforms that Gallagher
successfully fought for in the
wake of. the 2004 hurricane
season. Gallagher has renewed
his calls for more pro-consumer
measures in the wakeofthe2005
hurricane season. and isworking
with the Florida Legislature to
enact comprehensive reforms
to Florida's insurance market.
One provision of the new
checklist requires insurance
companies to list not only
the percentage of a hurricane
deductible but also list the
actual dollar amount in large
type. Gallagher: successfully
pushed a law limiting hurricane
deductibles to one per season,
after some victims of multiple
hurricanes discovered they
were responsible for up to three
deductibles. Also, the dollar
amount all coverage must be
listed in large type, including
the coverage limits for the
main _dwelling, all detached
structures, personal property
and contents. The checklist
must detail the amount of living
expenses that will be paid if
the policyholder has to leave
their home and the amount of
time the expense money will be
paid.
The checklist also contains a
list of perils that could damage
a residence and each item must
be accompanied by a \es or no
on whether r it is covered. Any
additional properly or liability
coverage must also be listed
along \L ith the dollar amount of
the coverage. Flonrdians \\ith
